STEM Education Research Collaborative
The STEM Education Research Collaborative (SERC) pursues policy-relevant research on the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Department of Curriculum and Instruction
College of Education faculty are working on more than 30 cutting-edge research initiatives funded by the National Science Foundation, the Institute of Education Sciences, and other key sources. These projects address critical STEM issues, including the creation of innovative pedagogical strategies and tools, exploring the role of learning sciences in enhancing STEM understanding, and examining ways to increase the quantity and quality of the STEM workforce by improving equity, diversity, and access. Through Graduate and Postdoctoral programs, the STEM Education Research Collaborative also prepares the next generation of leading researchers in the fields of mathematics, science and technology education.
IES-Funded Postdoc Training in Mathematics Education Research provides fellows with a rich set of experiences and skills needed to conduct mixed-method and quantitative research that will improve U.S. mathematics teaching and learning with diverse populations.
MSTE supports STEM education across campus at the most essential level; the interactions between teachers and learners, scientists and the citizenry.
Project STEP-UP investigates underrepresented undergraduate students' participation and persistence in the STEM fields at large, public, research universities using both qualitative and quantitative data.
Math Alliance Research Study examines the unique structures of the National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in Mathematics Sciences to identify the factors that make it successful in promoting minority participation in STEM.
